It is natural to experience a loss of facial volume and skin elasticity as we age. New lines and wrinkles form and deepen, and your skin may appear hollow and saggy. If loss of cheek fullness and a sagging jawline are your problems, cheek fillers could be the solution.
Cheek fillers for facial contouring, lifting, and rejuvenation.
• Emotional stress

Facial contouring removes wrinkles and corrects the contours of your face by using a natural substance already in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is already part of your body, so there'll be no chance of rejection or other complications. It blends harmoniously with the fluids in the skin without the risk of any adverse reaction.
Which parts of the face are usually targeted during this procedure?
The primary site targeted is the cheek bone area, however since the hyaluronic acid gel injected draws water to the area and can create an overall lifting effect.
In addition, the subtle increas of volume to he cheeks create a tapering effect on the face, minimising the appearance of a squared jawline or wider lower face.
Our aesthetic doctors inject the appropriate volume of filler at these regions to produce a balanced and attractive result.
What is the treatment procedure for Facial Contouring?
Step 1 – Facial assessment & mapping: Our doctor will evaluate your facial appearance and skin tone and examine the areas of your face to be augmented. Strategic points on your face may be marked as the appropriate injection sites for the filler. Photographs may be taken of the areas to be treated.
Step 2 – Cleansing & anesthetizing: The injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Pain at the injection site may be minimised by use of a very cold instrument to chill the skin, anesthetic ointment to numb the skin or injection of local anesthesia. While not painless, the injections are usually easily tolerated.
Step 3 – The injection: Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler added as needed. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process may be as short as 15 minutes, or as long as an hour.
Step 4 – Clean up & recovery: Once the results are deemed satisfactory, any markings will be cleaned. You will be offered an ice pack to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort if such experiences occur. Although the area may feel a bit tender for a day or two, it is usually not painful enough to require any medication.
Some of the effects of treatment include:
• Enhanced cheek bones
• Softer facial creases
• Smoothing of wrinkles
• Improvement in the appearance of jawline
An overall natural and youthful appearance is the subtle result achieved by cheek fillers.
Results are usually achieved in a single treatment. Our Doctors use only premium grade fillers, meaning fillers in the cheek area last up to two years.
